Failing a course will not affect your GI Bill benefits, however withdrawing or receiving an incomplete grade for a course may affect your benefits. As long as you receive a grade (pass or fail) the VA will not ask for your GI Bill money back..
However, if a student drops a course(s) or withdraws from school the VA will immediately stop paying education benefits for those classes and the student may be billed for the education benefits they have already been paid for that term. Students are strongly encouraged to notify the PAC VA Office immediately of a withdrawal to minimize overpayments.The VA will bill a student in this situation unless circumstances beyond the student’s control prevented the student from continuing in school or caused the student to reduce credits. These mitigating circumstances are presumed to exist the first time a student drops 6 or less credits. After the first drop a veteran must prove to the VA that mitigating circumstances were the cause of the drop/withdrawal.Examples of mitigating circumstances include:
If VA rules that mitigating circumstances do not exist than the student will be charged for any education benefits they received for that academic term (e.g., tuition/fees, living allowance and book stipend).
The Post 9/11 GI Bill pays generous benefits for part time students. For example:Tuition and Fees: Tuition benefits are the same for full-time and part-time students. Living allowance: Paid to students who are enrolled more than half-time. A student enrolled one unit above exactly half time will qualify for a prorated monthly living allowance. For example, a student is taking 7 credits at a school that considers 12 credits full-time, that student will receive 60% of the normal living allowance rate.
Book Stipend: The payment will be $41.67 for every credit enrolled, but no more than $1,000 per academic year. (e.g., a student enrolled in 12 units will receive $500 for that academic term).
